    You'll have better success if you remove them altogether for anything other than gravel. And even then, many guys don't even use them.

    I second that. Unless a customer is paying for me to have them on, they are useless

    I add them to the collection of things in the bed of the truck..... otherwise known as ballast. :dizzy:

    But B&B brings yet another good point the table. If you plow on gravel, they are great!

    But, x2 on the decoy weight thing... good thinkin!

    what if your plowing a dirt road out to your barn?
    I had them set high, I now have them level with the plow will this help prevent it from digging into the grass?

    Nope, put them a lil bit lower than the blade, other wise the blade will dig in and they will just sit in the hole made by the blade. I keep mine about 1/2 inch below my cutting edge until my moms gravel drive freezes, then they come off....
